  • Here, Eva shows her love and knowing of the ngurra (country) she lives and grew up on. The lines represent all of the little kilikis (creeks) running throughout the country in wet season. The circles represent waterholes (tjurntu) and holes dug in the ground when llooking for bush food like karnti ( The colourful dot work represent all the different types of plants and flowers. Eva says: "We always sing before we go hunting... those women were singing for kuka (meat) and mangarri (bushtucker) that they are going to get on that hunting trip." On both edges of the painting eva has painted soakwaters. The cirlces with white around them represent dry soak waters. The brown circles represent holes in the ground left from the women when they are digging for karnti (sweet potato) and kimpupatja (bush tomatoes). "
